Location & Description
The property enjoys a stunning location on the upper slopes of the Malvern Hills on the outskirts of West Malvern, approximately two miles from the well served cultural spa town of Great Malvern where there is a comprehensive range of amenities including shops and banks, Waitrose supermarket, the renowned theatre and cinema complex and the Splash leisure pool and gymnasium. The highly regarded nearby village of Colwall is a similar distance and offers further amenities. Transport communications are excellent. There are mainline railway stations in both Great Malvern and Colwall. Junction 2 of the M50 south of Ledbury is less than ten miles away and Junction 7 of the M5 south of Worcester is a similar distance. Educational facilities are second to none in both the state and private systems at secondary and primary levels including The Elms and Downs Preparatory Schools in Colwall as well as Malvern College, Malvern St James Girls School, The Chase High and Dyson Perrins Secondary Schools in Malvern.
Arden enjoys arguably one of the finest settings in the Malverns, situated as it is on the upper slopes of the hills with a wonderful westerly aspect across the rolling countryside of Herefordshire below and towards the Brecon Beacons, Black Mountains and Wales in the far distance. It stands in the heart of unspoilt countryside owned and protected by Malvern Hills Conservators with direct access onto the hills themselves. Its large and attractively landscaped garden is one of the great strengths of the property, designed as it is to make the most of its sunny aspect and views but also to keep maintenance to a minimum. Watching the sun setting on the western horizon is one of its great joys. Originally dating back to the 1930's Arden is a traditional two storey detached house which offers great potential for refurbishment and extension. Standing as it does in its lovely setting and garden this is one of those rare opportunities to purchase a house this with imagination and investment could be transformed into a particularly striking contemporary home. The current accommodation includes a porch, hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen, cloakroom with WC, four bedrooms and a bathroom with separate WC. It is situated half way down an exclusive private un-adopted road with a driveway that can accommodate several vehicles and a small garage of timber construction. Below the main accommodation there is a small cellar. The large garden in mainly laid to gently sloping lawns with mature well stocked and colourful herbaceous shrub borders as well as a number of impressive trees, seating areas and hedged boundaries.
